The lawyers have landed in the uproar over Chinese drywall

The continuing saga of homeowners facing problems with Chinese drywall continued this week with a major update by USA Today.

For those that are unaware of the issue, Chinese drywall reportedly used in homes in Florida and other states, is being blamed for off-gassing that causes damage to a home's electrical and heating components. The materials, which were imported after a building materials shortage caused by Gulf Coast rebuilding boom in 2004 and 2005, is also reported to give off a rotten egg odor. Some have reported that it smells a bit like fireworks, not surprising since sulfur is a core ingredient.
